Ahh, mostly a woman's club. Unless somethings have radically changed overnight.

Sorry :) I didn't mean to count you out, just noting that many of the women who have been regularly posting here recently had gathered to note the occasion! we just need Deb and Shakeitupnow.

Well then, you little chauvanist Pigpen, you can just sit in a corner and enjoy this one. You know which tune I mean.

I was thinking exactly the same thing! Thanks.

... wouldn't be nothing without a woman or a girl.

LOL that's about right, unfortunately.
Even though according to the latest research we are all-round harder working and better educated, worldwide, we still earn less. WAY less. And in many parts of the world, we can still be stoned or burned alive for "offenses" that men are totally permitted, or not allowed to walk down the street unless on the arm of a brother or husband.

Ok, off soapbox now ...

Just thought we needed a serious moment :) I'm afraid the Grateful Dead's great canon is not chock full of feminist statements. Yeah, there's Loose Lucy, and Bobby's love, whose "head's all empty" but he doesn't care (cringe...)

A good thought. With all the political and social turmoil in the Middle East, it does seem like an appropriate time to reflect on the role of women in society. Congrats to all you fine, fine ladies out there! I consider myself fortunate to know and work with so many brilliant, hardworking, professional women.

I always took that to mean his head, too. They're having high times by the river, with the blossoms blooming and all. I prefer my interpretation. Though it's true she's ditzy to pay all his tickets.

I've always heard it the other way, but maybe you're right!

Yes, we menfolk let you ladies know (like always, right?) that Bob meant it in a self-referential fashion, and since we mean men love to bash Bob, well, it sorta just fits, eh?

Seriously (that's all ya need, Rob...you little needler you [ ;) ]), though--I think the three of us kicked it around once before...ya know, that he didn't mean his jeep girl. I'd never even considered he meant her til whomever it was that mentioned it (you mayhaps?) in that thread some time back...just goes to show how you can interpret so many lyrics in so many ways, you know?

Did we discuss it before? I'm not surprised, I don't know what I post anyway.

I'm here! In a house full of men, it's a dangerous thing to walk around singing "...that's right, the women are smarter, that's right..."...but, I still do! Happy International Women's Day!

I live in a house full of men too, it's rough sometimes, it's an alien culture. What do they have to complain about? Hair in the shower drain? Whereas what we put up with ...

Au Contraire hirsute one! I am the one that fills the drain with hair...(bald, but not quite; it's got to go somewhere, right?).

Now, enough of disgusting tales of bathroom hygiene; I simply cannot understand why you gals haven't brought up the fact that some vertebrate girls have the balls (ovarian sorts) to have simply done away with boys, and take care of everything themselves (including pseudocopulation, proving that you don't even need "us" for sex, much less fertilization).

It is amazing to realize just how many of you all are hereabouts these days--does the boys club atmosphere come thru to the extent it did when you first arrived? Just curious--have you noticed any real change?

I'd cry "too much information" but I guess I started it:)

Who're you calling a vertebrate?! :)

>sorts) to have simply done away with boys, and take care of everything themselves (including pseudocopulation, proving that you don't even need "us" for sex, much less fertilization).

This has been a well-established fact too long to require reporting on here :) though I really don't know what pseudocopulation might be. No, don't explain, unless it's a lizard thing.

>It is amazing to realize just how many of you all are hereabouts these days--

You make it sound like we're some kind of invasive species.

>does the boys club atmosphere come thru to the extent it did when you first arrived? Just curious--have you noticed any real change?

I dunno, I wasn't here that long before other gals showed up. I don't really mind the boys club, like I say my household is also a boys club, all the talk is sports and cars and Great Battles of History. I'd have kept using my own name if someone hadn't replied "So D___, what do you look like?" to one of my posts and I figured it was easier to go with a gender-neutral handle than have to keep explaining that no one should get their hopes up, in addition to being very cozily married what I look like is a haggard old lady.

What a set up! I refuse to be drawn into the one liner fray, having already asked for it elsewhere (assume you instantly recognized the appropriate response, for us 14 yr olds at heart, was "Radical? I don't think so...").
